Decofoam Turtle

Download Activity Guide

Have hours of fun playing with this adorable underwater turtle. But remember, it's only pretend - don't actually put this little guy under water!

Search terms: under the sea, animal, reptile, tortoise, ocean.

  • Roughly rip up or cut tissue paper into small pieces. Coat the half circle in slightly watered down PVA glue and cover it in the tissue paper pieces while the glue is still wet. This is not essential but provides a good base for painting on decofoam.
  • Step 1Paint your half circle green. Allow to dry.
  • Step 2Cut some small hexagon shapes from adhesive felt. Peel off the adhesive backing and attach to your half circle.
  • Step 3Cut a face and 2 flippers from foam. Attach to your turtle’s shell with glue. You may need to hold them in place while they dry.
  • Step 4Attach two wiggle eyes to your turtle’s face with glue. Allow to dry.
  • Step 5Add detail with a marker.
